Why did I lose my priority registration status?

  • Continuing students may lose their priority registration status if they are placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive terms or they have completed more than 100 units at Allan Hancock College. The 100 unit limit does not include units earned in English as Second Language (ESL) or basic skills courses (500- level coursework).

Students who meet established criteria may be eligible to appeal for priority registration. 

Appeal for Loss of Priority Enrollment and or CCPG fee waiver form

*First Time Student placement is based upon information provided when applying to the college.  First time Transfer Students who completed Math and English at another college or university, must provide official transcripts to the Admissions office verifying successful completion of these courses.
